  • Over 50 Healing Centers throughout the UK, staffed by volunteer members, and Healing Circles in the USA


The word Spiritual originates from the Latin ‘spiritus’ meaning ‘breath of life’.

Healing can be defined as regaining balance of mind, body, emotions, spirit and soul.

Spiritual Healing is a natural energy therapy that complements conventional medicine by treating the whole person – mind, body, emotions, spirit and soul. Healers are thought to act as a conduit for Healing energy, the benefits of which can be felt on many levels, including the physical.

An excellent introduction to our modality can be found in a ten minute film about the Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary.
